RT Brainery - The Art of Filmmaking and Storytelling

Learn Filmmaking with Sharif Ferdous Arko

“The reason I got into filmmaking was super naive: to change the world, you know? To really make the voices that we don’t get to hear heard and the images and the stories that we don’t get to see seen. I would like to normalize that.” Said Melina Matsoukas 

Filmmaking is an industry which never gets out of demand, a subject which teaches one to understand people, understand the history and to view and express the world in a different way. A field which can also teach you practical skills like team work, creative writing, finance management, project management, an activity which gives you the highest freedom to unleash your creative self. So this time at RT Brainery Episode 4, we will teach you the art of filmmaking and storytelling. RT Brainery is one of the regular programmes of Reflective Teens where we teach teenagers various skills to enhance their creativity.

Course Summary

Each student will have a comprehensive understanding of an overall storytelling process through digital video. They will be provided reading materials, book recommendations, writing exercises, cinematography exercises, and editing exercises. The Exercises will be timed during the week breaks, and if any student need help they can reach out and get help via mail. At the end of the program, each student will have to submit a project (Film) of themselves.

Although, this program is not going to make the students experts in writing, shooting, or editing but the will get a guide line on how to keep self-educating themselves  for the unforeseeable future.

From RT Brainery Season 2
I am very much fortunate to be a part of one-month course organized by RT Brainery on story writing, origami, scratch programming and digital painting as well. I enjoyed the whole course, especially the Digital Painting as I am quite interested in painting topics. It would be more interesting if RT Brainery organizes more online courses like this. Our mentors were very much friendly too.
